Below are the suggested target understandings and skills for fourth grade visual arts:
  • Making Art and Expressing Meaning in Art - Practice observing and making art that includes more and more precise details as the school year progresses. Make foreground objects different from one another with contrasts of value, color, and/or texture. Create art based on unusual points of view. Shade with one light source in an artwork.
  • Appreciating and Decoding Meaning in Art - Repeat shapes, colors, and/or objects to lead the eye through a work of art. Emphasize an object by making it contrast with its surroundings. Discuss how the elements and principles help artists express their ideas. Discuss how mood is created in artworks.

WEEK OF NOVEMBER 1ST:
I need you to have your kids download the "Frame by Frame" software for stop animation in art. It needs to be on their dock for art – if not this week, next week for sure. As far as your environments and characters (animals), lets try and have the following finished by end of class tomorrow, taking it one step further by writing a short script (documentary or 1st person):
All elements of the environment are evident
Animal is complete and cut out
Be thinking about how a script might go:
Introduce the animal and its characteristics
Begin by telling what life is like in the day of (your animal) - might need to do this for each season
Include EVERY element of your environment in your description/story
